Charlene Ruto Asks Benny Hinn To Pray For Her To Get Married



A prayer to God to provide a husband for Charlene Ruto, the daughter of Kenya’s president, has sparked a flurry of online reactions in the country.

Ms Ruto was among thousands who attended a mass prayer meeting by the American preacher Benny Hinn over the weekend in the capital city, Nairobi.

In the presence of her parents, President Ruto and First Lady Rachel Ruto, Charlene articulated her devotion to the youth of Kenya and Africa.

She expressed her hope for divine guidance in finding a partner aligning with her mission to impact the younger generation positively.


Evangelist Benny Hinn, leading the congregation in worship, prayed fervently for Charlene’s request, asking for God’s intervention in bringing her a supportive husband who would stand by her side in her endeavours.

Hinn’s prayer emphasized the importance of Charlene having a life partner who would strengthen her efforts in serving the youth and advancing her mission to bring hope and inspiration to young people across the country.

As the preacher asked for those with prayer requests to come forward, the president’s daughter rose up, seeking prayers for the calling she said she has for young people.

The preacher prayed for her and later asked if there were any special requests. She whispered into his ear before he continued praying:

“Give her a husband that will fulfil that call with her. Lord send that young man her way, that will be a strength to her, a great supporter,” Benny Hinn prayed.

“She can’t do this alone, Lord, she is going to the battlefield to win souls… she needs a husband soon.”

This prayer for a husband got Kenyans talking – some criticising, some sending their marriage proposals to her, some mocking her.

“My name is Omwamba, a hustler and I am reaching out to you after witnessing your heartfelt request for a husband during your prayer session with the Pastor Benny Hinn.

“I was moved by your sincerity and the faith you demonstrated yesterday and God has sent me your way,” one Kenyan wrote on X,formerly Twitter.

Some have been supportive: “There is nothing wrong with Charlene Ruto asking Benny Hinn to pray for her to get a good husband. Marriage is sacred,” another Kenyan said.
